Super League club could face heavy fines

This weekend Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils are effectively going head to head to ensure their spot alongside Wigan Warriors, Hull KR, Leigh, Leopards, Catalans Dragons and St Helens in the Super League play offs.

There is a lot at stake for both clubs but things have certainly been going against the Red Devils in recent weeks and months.

Especially with the club ravaged by illness going into their defeat last week and that problem is still an issue.

This is perhaps why their fans were so on edge at Craven Park which is perhaps why there were problems.

According to reports two arrests were made and Salford have warned that the club could receive heavy fines.

In a statement posted to the clubs website this week, the Red Devils have said: “the club is aware of and is investigating incidents of anti-social behaviour reported at our game against Hull KR on Saturday. The reported incidents have placed others at risk and can result in the club being issued heavy fines.”

They added: “We are proud of the passion so often displayed in the stands by our fans, and whilst we understand the excitement on the field can get us all carried away at times, it is our collective responsibility to ensure a respectful and safe environment for all to enjoy. Disorder and the behaviour of a small group should not and will not be allowed to give our supporters a bad name.

“We’d like to remind our supporters that we condemn such behaviour, and that once reviewed, the Club will be taking appropriate action and issuing bans to any offenders identified.”

The Red Devils fell to a 12-0 defeat during the game on Saturday; however they still remain in the hunt for the playoffs as they are still level on points with Warrington Wolves going into the final game of the season.

They must defeat Catalans Dragons however to give themselves a chance of making it and hope former boss Ian Watson does them a favour and secures their spot in the play offs by defeating Warrington in what will be a farewell game for Jermain McGillvery and Chris McQueen.
